Manager info

About: I grew up on the Gulf Coast and have rarely lived far from the beach. The morning walks on the beach with the cool sand seeping thru my toes, watching the Galveston Air Force (lol....pelicans flying in formation), and all the sounds and sights of living close to the coast have always been in my soul. Bienvenidos Y Mi Casa es Su Casa!

Why Silk Stocking District:
An avid kayaker for many years I would bring my kayak in from Houston to Galveston and one day found this lovely home which soon became home for me and my kayak. I have spent many years here on the island enjoying the sunsets, walking the beaches and playing in the waters. I wish this joy and peace for you in the time you are at my lovely home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This lovely space offers a spacious upper deck with wonderful cool breezes. The tropical gardens, hammock and hot/cool tub await you after a long day in the sun. The lower unit is owner occupied.
